The Early English Books Online (EEBO) database now has thumbnail images to make it easier to get an overview of items in the collection. This is especially helpful in locating images and sections within large documents.
Thousands of new documents are available from the Early English Tracts Supplement, including include proclamations, acts of parliament, letters, epistles, petitions, ballads, sermons, pamphlets, almanacs, catalogues, treatises and more. Some of the titles now online with this first release include:
- The colde tearme: or, the frozen age: or the metamorphosis of the Riuer of Thames. 1621
- The armes of the tobachonists.
- Strange and true newes of an ocean of flies dropping out of a cloud, upon the towne of Bodnam in Cornwall. To the tune of Cheevy Chase. When kings have lost their reignes and power, then clouds upon us judgements showre.
EEBO's What's New? page also includes a case study of how Dr Georgia Wilder (University of Toronto) uses EEBO in the classroom.
